Four arrests in connection with drug trafficking

Police officers from the MRC de Beauharnois-Salaberry detachment of the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) arrested four individuals during a drug trafficking operation in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield on March 28.

The operation stemmed from an investigation that began in January. Officers carried out searches of four private residences and a vehicle, where they seized more than seven grams of cocaine, around 20 methamphetamine tablets, and over 120 prescription pills. Officers also confiscated approximately $865 in Canadian currency and several cellular phones.

Three men and one woman, aged between 40 and 55, were arrested and later released. All four could face charges related to drug trafficking.

Around 20 officers took part in the operation, including SQ dog handlers.
